A couple of weeks ago, I set up an area in our backyard for Jason and Jenna to dig, plant and play. It’s been a big hit, especially with Jenna who has started her own garden in this previously unused portion of our yard. Today I’m sharing more of this project on Modern Parents, Messy Kids.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day! While most of my weekend was spent prepping for Jenna’s upcoming ‘Camp Cinderella’ birthday party, I spent this afternoon having a picnic at the Dallas Arboretum. Here are a few of my favorite pics from the weekend:


Happy Easter

Despite lots of sickness in our family, we had a very nice holiday weekend. It was our first Easter in the new house, and the yard proved to be the perfect site for an egg hunt. Most years, Jason and Jenna quickly snatch up the eggs and count their bounty to see who won. This year, victory definitely went to the Easter bunny. J+J gave up after an extensive search of both the front and back yards, leaving at least 3 or 4 eggs to be found later in the day.

Here are a few more highlights from our weekend:
